Scalpel Procedures

While an in-office scalpel procedure may sound straightforward, these procedures are delicate and should be conducted by a physician.

A bump on the eyelid could simply be a benign cyst or a sty, or it could be a form of skin cancer. If left undetected, the tumor can quietly spread, putting the health of the patient at grave risk.

It is important for a trained physician to treat these conditions, because the complications can be serious:

  • Spread of cancer
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Damage to nearby structures
  • Death (extreme cases)
